Mario Kart Wii
Great Game to Play With Others
Mario Kart Wii is a very good game. I would say that the single player mode can get a little boring after you have unlocked everything. However, there is a mode where you can play people online. You can friend people and even talk to them in a private room. You get a code (0000-0000-0000) and you can give it to a friend and battle each other in the comfort of your own homes. There are 2 types of gameplay. One is a classic race, and the other is a battle. In a race, you just try to be the 1st place winner after 3 laps are over. This mode would get boring if it didn't have some twist, right? Well as all mario games do, it does. They have crazy speed bumps, short cuts, and classic mario items. The items will apear to be better the worse your doing. So lets say I was in 1st. I would get something like a banana peal to drop. But if I was in 12th place, (last) I would get something like a bullet bill to bring me a lot closer to the opponents. I would say the items make this game worth playing. In battle mode, you will rotate from balloon battle, to coin battle. In balloon battle, you have to hit the opponents as many times as possible. Every hit is 1 point. You get 3 balloons. each time you get hit, you will lose 1 of your balloons. If you lose all 3, you get a new set of balloons, and get -1 point. You can not go negative though. (0-1=0) There is much more to learn about this game. I am not going to go any further and just say, this game is a lot of fun if you have WiFi in addition.
Cool and fast.
This game is the best (for me) game of go-karts. It is easy to learn and it is challenging and it has the best charachters from toadette and dry bones to funky kong and bowser jr. The only trouble is that sometimes the wiiwheel is hard to control and the most of people preferr other controls. Aside from that, it is a good game.
my favorite game!
When I first heard of this game I thought back to the old gamecube version. It used to be my favorite video game. I then realized how much better this version had to be because of the new wii wheel. The old version was pretty good but this one was even better. The controls work amazingly as long as you are a skilled driver! But one of my favorite features is that you can also play without the wheel. You can play with just a wii remote or a classic controller. You can even play with a gamecube controller. So now you don't have to waste money on a wheel. Sound and music was pretty good. The music can get boring after a while but I don't really care. The graphics were just stunning. It's just so good, that I can barely explain it. Challenge is great. They just got it right. It's not too hard or easy interface! You don't have to ask!!There is a good amount of vehicles and tracks in this game. In conclusion, I really love this game and I definitely recommend this game to people of all ages.
Ture to the Series
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when i opened up Mario Kart Wii. Since Mario Kart on the NES this has been a favorite series of mine. Mario Kart 64 was a whole new level in graphical improvement. My friends and I spent many hours shouting about how the race was so close or how the other was a complete jerk for shooting that red shell at the end of the race, this is basically the essence of what the Mario Kart is all about. Mario Kart Wii Isn't a graphical powerhouse of a game, but it shines in it's own way. The wheel which comes prepackaged with the game is very easy to use and the controls are reasonable. It takes some time at first to get used to the way you turn, but it grows on you. The tracks in the game are varied and add challenges to the race that help keep things fresh and exciting and the WFC feature in the game spices things up as well. With the ability to download ghost data from the top racer's from around the world and online racing this game will live for a long time.
Good old Mariokart
This game is a really great game to have. It never gets boring and theres is always something new to try or somones record to beat. The game is really fun for any kind of gamer at any age. Ive found adults sometimes like to play it and little kids love this game. The online play is great, you can choose to play with people from around the world or people closer to you or even just people you've registered as wii friends. You can battle or race people from around the world, and there are tournaments to compete in which i haven't participated in but Ihear its fun and i've watched people play it and it looks fun. There are time trials where you can try to beat people's records or beat your own record. The controls are great because you can choose from a couple different ways to control your racer like the wii wheel, the gamecube controller, or the classic controller depending on your reference. Overall a great game and i definitely recommend it to any fan of mariokart or racing games.
Can't Wait 3 weeks 21 days left!
I can't tell anyone how excited I am about this game, it's going to be the best out of the series. I want to play online races and battle mode. I can't wait to use the Wii Wheel so I can feel like I am actually racing and feel like I am driving a car. The are 16 new course and 16 old course that are revamped. I really like the single player Idea , I think it was cool to have double kart in one series but back to single karts is good I prefer it when I was playing MK64. I like that there is 12 player battle mode online & that u are on 1 team of 6. I think I will be Mario for the first time because Mario is my favorite character for Nintendo. There are so many different ways of playing gamecube, classic controller, wii remote & wii remote & nunchuk and then of course the Wii Wheel. I am hoping I can unlock all the characters and Karts within a week because I was able to with double dash. bottom line is I can't wait for this game and so isn't everyone else. Best Mario Kart game out of the Wii!
a MUST for the Wii
Now that I own Mario Cart, other games for the Wii seem extremely dull and boring by comparison. The controls for this game are smooth and it operates very well. The voice over things for each character and funny and quirky. Not only are the later courses challenging, you will want to play the beginner courses again and again as well. The online wi-fi connect is just a tad disappointing, and so are the choices for carts, but other than that I think the people who worked on this game did an excellent job. The graphics are amazing to me personally, and it loads fast. I think the only sad downside, is your thumb will hurt like crazy if you play for too long. if you start to get a button imprint in your finger, you know its time to take a break. If you are thinking about getting this game for the Wii, go ahead and get it. And get another wheel too. Even though that extra wheel from gamestop isn't a complete wheel, it doesn't matter, you aren't going to be holding that part anyway.
This game is incredibly awesome just as the title says. I was so excited the day I got it, I nearly jumped out of my skin because I was so happy. I thought it was going to be a great game. I was wrong. It was more than just a great game. It was an incredible and the most enjoyable experience I've had on a console for a while. While the game itself is good, you are going to love the online feature. Everyone says it's good, and trust me, it is. I'll leave it to you to find out what I mean. In addition, you can use just about any kind of controller that fits you, (mine is the Nunchuck and the Wii Remote, or the Wii Wheel.) and they all work really well. There will always be new courses to play, as well as some old ones that got remixed. (Bowser's Castle and Rainbow Road for example.) Of course, there are some that haven't been changed at all, so you can play your favorite courses on the game. There's really nothing that's that bad on this game, so get it now if you have a Wii!!
If you like mario kart for ds, you love mario kart wii
I think that mario kart wii is the best mario game. The challenge starts a little easy, but after you unlock new worlds, it gets more challenging. I think the controls are the most awesome because you use the wii wheel and it feels like you're actually driving the kart in the game. The graphics are good because it's not to detailed, but it is not to simple, it is just in the middle. I think they did a good job with interface. I like the sound of the game. The game has good sound affects and just the sound itself is great. I think the track variety was awesome because it had some easy tracks, medium tracks, hard tracks, and just plain cool tracks. I like the vehicle customization. They made it kart the characters personality and like you'll know its that persons kart. I like the vehicle variety. It had many karts to choose from and there are a lot of characters, so there are millions of karts. If you liked Mario Kart for the ds, you'll love Mario Kart Wii ten times as much!
The good and the bad
First things first: do NOT buy this game if you like Mario Kart for battle mode. They have made DRASTIC changes to the battle system. All of the battle courses are immense, and all battles are 12 person team battle- any empty slots are filled by computers. I won't go into more detail; suffice to say, it's nothing like what we've seen in the past. Negativity out of the way, the racing is a lot of fun. All of the new courses are fast paced, crazy, challenging- and I haven't even unlocked the more difficult cups yet! I really enjoy the motorcycles, it adds a different element and a little more strategy to your choice of vehicle. If you're here to race, you're going to enjoy it. Oddly, all races are 12 person as well, once again filling the empty spaces with computers. Lastly, the wii wheel. Fisher-price jokes aside, it's pretty entertaining, and whereas it requires a little more attention I strongly recommend you give it a try. To all of you getting the game- happy racing!
